Baby Update

Alright, so here I am, still in the hospital. They actually sent me home on Saturday around 11:00am but I came back in late that night around 3:00am with more big bleeding, so I am officially here to stay.
The official update is that at 37 weeks (about April 21) I will have an amniocentesis to determine if the baby's lungs are developed. If that test is positive they will deliver me. Unfortunately, because of the bleeding and the complications it can cause with normal delivery, I'll have to have a c-section. That doesn't excite me, but it's for the best.
So, pray that all will go well with the test and that we can deliver this baby soon after it!
This means that we have to endure about two and half more weeks of this hospital stay. Landon and Nate are hanging in there. Landon keeps busy with Grandma and Aunt Amber and Aunt Megan. Nate keeps way too busy with work, school, and finals coming up. Needless to say, May will bring much needed relief from all the stresses in our life right now.
Thanks again for everyone's help and support!

I heard that you were there to stay. I am so sorry I haven't visited. I have been really sick all week, along with three sick kids. I was waiting for it to pass, but it still hasn't. I got you something and still need to finish my gift for your baby. I hope you are doing well. You will be in our prayers. I promise I will pay a visit as soon as I am better.
